The whole band must be feeling real good for this home show as Jerry, Phil and Pig are all having a great day. Jerry's singing on Brokedown will bring a tear to your eye and his solos on Big Boss, Big RR and HTH (to name a few) are all top notch. Pig sounds pretty good as he is only around for 2 more weeks before his break. And then there's Phil who is all over the place and hitting some big bombs along the way. Approved by our good Dr Flashback as well. I really like the stretch of shows in August 1971.

Don't know anything about the show. But I must say summer of 71 phil is amazing. His playing is great and the tones he uses make him stand out great. I always love listening to 71 just for phil. This show has that great phil sound to it.

"When Phil is on " yadda, yadda, yadda, you know the rest. I often think Phil had found the sound he was searching for on most of this year as well. Up and into '74 as well. I never find myself complaining when he is high in the mix. His inordinate ability to add a unique third layer algorithm of sound to the overall tonal experience, always puts a smile on the old face. Peace

Ha--yes, never complain about loud bass myself. And, yes, BD, the 14th is/was the birthdate (recall that issue generated a controversy hereabouts? "is" or "was"? they have both passed on...anyhoo, beside the pt) of my ma & one brother. Good show.

Back to bass: big appeal of CREAM (Ha! Surprise ya? No? Didn't think so...) is that Jack is so clear and crisp on lead bass. I realize that this is one reason I like simple bands with lead/bass/drums, if the bass player plays lead, and all the rest as well...Of course, our boys, the DEAD, were in the opposite direction, with two drummers, Bob, kybds, etc., so they often was "fill" to mask our "Phil", sometimes unfortunately, IMHO.

Does that mean you approve of the Who? I just happened on the Isle of Wight concert from 1970 (cable has a purpose), and it's mind-boggling as to how much John Entwhistle controlled a lot of the songs.

Oh yes...I would say that "Who's Next" is one of the ALL time great R&R albums, and this owes a huge debt to JE. He doesn't do as much for me as JBruce or Phil or Jack Cassady, but he is up there in the top ten for me for sure.

I think they were an amazing band in their prime (early is better, right?), and that album in 71 was just unreal.

Our HS DEAD cover band I am always on about had a GOOD bass player, and besides talking to me over the many yrs about how amazing JBruce was, he also was one of those that thought JE and W'sNext were just absolutely top notch...ie, that JE was the driving force behind much of "it" for them (exactly as I believe JB was THE force behind CREAM, along with GBaker).

I'm not a big Who fan, but I'd agree with WT that "Who's Next" is among the best R&R albums. Not to take anything away from John Entwistle, but I believe that the engineering/mixing of Glyn Johns deserves much of the credit for why that album stands out.

If you can, check out the Isle of Wight dvd. It's mind-boggling. And no engineering. :)

You forgot to mention the rather cool jam segment during The Other One. A lovely Tighten Up passage which evolves into a neat Middle-Eastern theme.

There is some speculation that Ned Lagin sat in for a portion of this performance, but I cant hear him...

Yes, that was a great jam. At times I thought I heard a little Mind Left Body and then it sounded like Feeling Groovy and then it sounded like Spanish Jam. So it's interesting that you hear Tighten Up! Perhaps there are some elements of all of these.
